Individual Roles of the Trinity

“THE FATHER CREATES A PLAN,
JESUS CHRIST IMPLEMENTS THE PLAN,
AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ADMINISTERS THE PLAN.”

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are unified together as God and function in harmony in the universe as well as in the lives of mankind. While the members of the Godhead have common goals and purpose, as well as  shared attributes and functions, each person of the Trinity also has unique roles and responsibilities.

The first chapter of the Bible opens with “In the beginning God….” The Word reveals to mankind the attributes and characteristics that God Himself chose to share with us. His design, will, and judgments bring clarity and purpose. Life is made fuller and richer as we learn and understand more about the nature of God.

God Is . . .

Types & Symbols of Musical Instruments

There is great beauty in reflecting upon musical instruments as types and symbols of the unity brought by the Holy Spirit in the lives of God’s people. When Solomon’s temple was dedicated, 120 priests sounded trumpets as one with the singers to praise and thank God (2 Chronicles 5:12-14). The glory of the Lord came down and filled the temple. In the New Testament, on the day of Pentecost, 120 followers of Christ were in the upper room in one accord. The Holy Spirit descended and filled them with His glory. They then became instruments of righteousness doing the will of God.
